There he is, master of all he surveys. In the world of chicken time has stood still. There aren't any women's rights, or house husbands. The men impregnate and protect without rest and fill the stewpot. The women eat and have babies. Or they live convent style and just eat and give eggs.
I'm reminded by this card I'm thankful to live in a country where women do have rights and if we are willing to pay the price can also be Emperor.
"Ability is of little account without opportunity." ~ Napoleon Bonaparte 1769-1821
Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
